Saturday Spotlight: And Then the Rains Came May 21, 2011

Posted by J. in Genius.

As a rule, I don’t mind the rain.  In fact, sometimes I rather enjoy a nice, rainy day.  Especially summer rain.  Everything seems shiny and clean when it rains: the leaves get shiny, the pavement is black, and the lawn seems greener and more lush.  Maybe the colors of the flowers stand out better against a gray sky than when they’re competing with the bright blue.  I don’t know.

And then it rains for a week and I rethink my generosity towards the clouds.

I don’t mind telling you that the gray overcast days are sapping my will to live.  I hate indecisive weather.  I mean, if you’re going to rain on my parade, just do it already.  Don’t sit there thinking about if you want to rain or not while I look out the window, smell the air, and try to decide if you’re going to get your meteorological fingers out of your ass and ruin my grilled steak tips or not.  JUST RAIN ALREADY OR BUGGER OFF.

*sigh*  I told you it makes me cranky.

Either way, it’s been one of those gray, drizzly, rainy, on-again/off-again wet weather kind of weeks.  Here are some things inspired by the rain–for good or bad.  (Seriously, check out the guinea pig…I squeed when I saw him!)
